[YEA] First of all, I've been using ACV for a while now as a facial toner after cleansing (diluted), in the laundry to soften towels and sweatshirts, etc. So when I got online to do some research for mole removal home remedies and found that ACV could help me, I was thrilled. I immediately went into the bathroom and roughed up a "pencil-eraser sized" raised mole I've had on my stomach that's made me incredible uncomfortable for years. I taped on an ACV-soaked piece of cotton. Did this several times, over and over again, and now, two-three weeks later, my mole is scabby but not gone. It got very sensitive to touch so I called off the ACV regimen, but started on another one. This one is located on my chin. I roughed it up very very gently because of the sensitive area, and bandaged on a piece of mole-sized cotton soaked in ACV. Wore that overnight. I dabbed it with an ACV-soaked cotton swab daily, while bandaging it with ACV-soaked cotton every night. I can't tell you the exact amount of time, but within probably a week, week and a half, my mole was a scab that was beginning to heal. Stupid me began to pick at it, not out of impatience but curiosity, I suppose, "IS THIS SCAB MY MOLE AND WHAT IS UNDERNEATH! ?" So naturally, it bled and left another scab. The scab since has come off and left me with a pretty smooth little scar which I suspect will fade within the year. My fiance couldn't believe it, and mentioned that I do the mole (flesh-colored, somewhat raised, smaller) on my nose. This one has always bothered me and has gotten more and more noticeable over time as had the one on my chin. When I wore make-up it looked as if I ALWAYS had a pimple on my nose--VERY sad since my skin has cleared up so beautifully since high school. So I couldn't help but rough it up just a bit, maybe ten seconds with the smoother side of an Emery board. I dabbed it with an ACV-soaked cotton swab several times a day, but for my first application (and once every couple of days), I held the cotton swab in place for as long as my arm would let me. For all moles tested, they turned white and then scabbed, etc.
I decided one night to sleep with a very tiny piece of ACV-soaked cotton bandaged on my nose. I began treatment on that mole probably 5 days ago and last night the last bit of scab fell off during my once-weekly exfoliation. I went up to my fiance and said "LOOK AT MY NOSE!! " and he was nearly speechless, couldn't believe that it was gone. I now have a very very small little crater with a little red scab, about the size of a ballpoint. This I feel assured will go away. The crater itself may remain just a little bit but I can tell you, IT'S BETTER THAN LOOKING LIKE I HAVE A PIMPLE ON MY NOSE ALL THE TIME!! :)
I want to begin treatment on other moles but want to see a doctor about a few of them first, they are a bit suspicious and potentially pre-cancerous because of their shapes, colors, etc. I am also going to restart ACV therapy on the first mole on my stomach now that the sensitivity and irritation has subsided. I am probably going to wear an ACV-soaked cotton ball taped to the area every other night and apply ACV 2-3x during the day. If anyone wants their moles gone without a large expense, try this! ACV does wonders for your body, inside and out, and also around the house. Love it!!
